Ballots for the 2022 Montgomery Village Foundation (MVF) Board of Directors election are being mailed to homeowners today, Friday, Feb. 4. Six candidates, including two incumbents, are running to fill the three seats on the Board; those seeking election are Doniele Ayres (incumbent), Albert Bennetts, Brian R. Della Rocca, Scott R. Dyer (incumbent), Dick Rabil and Tosan Tutse-Tonwe.
Each year, three seats become available for a three-year term. This election will see at least one new face on the Board, as one member whose term is expiring has chosen not to seek re-election.
Residents should read the candidate statements included with the mailed ballot to familiarize themselves with the candidates’ respective platforms. Each candidate has submitted a brief résumé and answered three specific questions pertaining to their proposed goals for election to the Board, included in the pull-out section of this issue. Video interviews outlining candidates’ ideas and positions are also available online at www.montgomeryvillage.comor on our YouTube channel; the transcripts from those videos are included in the pull-out section as well.
Additionally, residents can “meet” and talk with the candidates before the Thursday, Feb. 24 MVF Board meeting at 7 p.m. via Zoom, which is used for MVF Board meetings. Connection instructions can be found in the MVF Board Packet posted online the week before each meeting.
Ballots must be signed and returned to the MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road, by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 18. Given recent slower delivery times reported from the US Postal Service, it is important ballots be mailed back quickly to ensure delivery to MVF by the deadline. Alternatively, residents can drop their ballots in the brown mailbox in the MVF Office parking lot to ensure their vote can be validated.
Results will be counted and announced on Saturday, March 19, via Zoom. New Board members will be installed at the MVF Annual Meeting, scheduled for approximately 7:45 p.m., Thursday, March 24, also via Zoom.
